Writing the Self in Gender Research: Associate Professor Helena Liu on Autoethnography and Dr Roz Ward on the Autotheory
Bio / Abstract:
Dr Helena Liu is an Associate Professor of Management at Bond Business School on the unceded lands of the Kombumerri people of the Yugambeh language region. Her research critiques the gendered, racialised, and classed nature of our enduring romance with (business) leadership. She will discuss the potentials and pitfalls of doing autoethnographic research, sharing both her joyous experiences with this reflexive methodology and the crap she's encountered.
Dr Roz Ward co-founded and directed Safe Schools Coalition Victoria from 2010 until 2017 at La Trobe University. Roz's doctoral research used creative writing and social theory to construct an autotheoretical approach to understanding the significant political backlash against Safe Schools. Roz continues to teach diversity education and student wellbeing. Roz will discuss how autotheoretical research offers unique opportunities for combining the personal and the political in relation to gender and sexuality. In particular, Roz will argue that autotheory has the potential to extend and develop broader engagement with social theory.
